Need-Based-Scholarships for Private School Tuition and Homeschool Expenses


The Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund (NOSF) is accepting applications for the 2018-2019 school year for need-based scholarships for grades kindergarten through eighth worth up to $1,500 for children to use at a nonpublic school or $500 for homeschool expenses.  Families need to reside in Allen, Crawford, Defiance, Erie, Fulton, Hancock, Henry, Huron, Lucas, Ottawa, Paulding, Putnam, Richland, Sandusky, Seneca, Van Wert, Williams, Wood or Wyandot Counties.


NOSF is a partner with the Children’s Scholarship Fund and awards need-based scholarships to provide parents with a choice for their child’s education.  The Children’s Scholarship Fund was founded in 1998 by the late Ted Forstmann and the late John Walton who saw a need for educational alternatives for families. 


Since 1999, the Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund has awarded a total of $12.6 million in scholarships to 14,700 students, part of that includes $4.3 million in matching funds.  All funds raised locally by NOSF are matched by the Children’s Scholarship Fund and are used for scholarships in NW Ohio. 


The Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund is the only privately funded need-based scholarship program in northwest Ohio that awards scholarships to children who otherwise might not be able to afford private schools for kindergarten through eighth grade. Eligible families are required to demonstrate their financial need as measured by standards similar to the Federal School Lunch program.


Interested families can learn more about the program at www.nosf.org or apply online at https://tinyurl.com/NOSF18AP.  For more information please contact Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund at (419) 720-7048.  Deadline to apply for the 2018-2019 school year is Friday, April 27, 2018.
